A twisted tale of abuse, neglect, incest and starvation ended this week with the death of an infant and the rescue of a missing woman. Calvin McIntosh, 44, took his 15-month-old infant daughter to the hospital this past week. The child was dead on arrival according to the hospital. Upon examining the body of the child, it appeared that the death was more than likely due to neglect and abuse. Law enforcement authorities then executed a search warrant at the residence where McIntosh and the family were staying. It was then that they discovered a room of horror at an extended stay hotel located in Gwinnett County, Georgia.
Inside the police were met at the door by Najilla McIntosh, 23, and discovered three small children ages 5, 3, and 3 that were all severely malnourished and in need of medical attention. In addition, they discovered a 21-year-old woman lying on the floor, wrapped in blankets, weighing only 59 pounds and in great medical distress. Upon further investigation, the police discovered that the emaciated woman was listed as a teenage runaway from 2010. Police also found large amounts of literature and notes pertaining to The Nuwabian Nation of Moors, a black cult that is well known for being a “sovereign citizen” group. When talking to the rescued woman, police learned that McIntosh and his daughter would deprive the children of food when they were being disobedient. It was learned also that McIntosh had fathered all four children with his daughter and the captive woman. Adding to the horror was that none of the children spoke English but rather a constructed language spoken only by Nuwabian Nation of Moors members.
Calvin McIntosh and Nijilla Macintosh have now been charged with felony murder, malice murder, first-degree cruelty to children, second-degree cruelty to children, and cruelty to a physically disabled adult. Calvin McIntosh was also charged with rape, incest, and aggravated sodomy.
